Hope That Overcomes Suffering

The world is hurting. There is pain and fear at every turn. Each day can be full of uncertainty and sorrow. As we encounter our neighbors (Luke 10:25-37), we do not confront them with a beating of shame & guilt. No, we embrace them with a refreshing drink of grace and mercy, pointing them to a hope that they are already looking for, though they may not be able to articulate it. A hope that eludes the self help claims. A hope that is beyond the supposed security of a career or education. It is a supernatural hope found in Jesus! Each day remind yourself and those you meet that the love of the Lord never ceases, and therefore our hope never dies out.
